Marc Atkinson's compositions are punchy, driving and rhythmically inventive. They take the guitar beyond the usual repertoire and sound. The tunes have a fiery but elegant style, infused with a catchy blend of influences. All the while maintaining the laid-back humour and casual 'good time feel' of Canada's West Coast. His picking has been described as flawless, surprise-filled, sizzling and supremely melodic. His music is original, complex and challenging in its conception and delivery but remains accessible and absorbing. With Reuben Weir on rhythm and Joey Smith on bass, the music of this fine trio welcomes all listeners aboard for an intriguing, exhilarating and unforgettable ride. http://www.marcatkinson.com
